In any situation where a patient might require restorative dental work, our commitment at our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is to provide treatment that has lasting value. One way we do this is by providing restorations that closely match the appearance of your healthy tooth enamel, which ensures that your appearance is not changed by your procedure. We can also ensure this by doing work that keeps teeth protected through the years, even as you continue to put pressure on it when you bite and chew. What you should know is that in addition to providing restorations with lasting value, we also offer treatments that are more convenient than you anticipate. Thanks to CEREC technology, it is possible for us to design and place dental crowns for patients in just one day.
CEREC Technology Can Shorten A Patient’s Treatment Time
In other dental practices, the placement of a crown can demand more than one trips to your dentist’s office. This is because these other practices do not have the technology to produce crowns on site, and must rely on third party dental labs for help. Our practice uses CEREC technology, which gives us all necessary tools for measuring teeth, creating digital designs for crowns, and finally producing your restoration in our in-office milling machine. Because the crown produced is made from appearance-friendly ceramic, you can feel comfortable with the protection as well as the appearance of the crown!
What Problems Call For Dental Crown Placement?
Dental crowns are used for more than just cavity treatments, though they are often necessary for addressing tooth decay. Crowns are used to treat cavities any time the damage to a tooth is too serious for a dental filling. They are also effective at protecting teeth that have been chipped, cracked, or otherwise broken. It should be noted that your dentist may perform a root canal procedure before placing your crown. This is done to address internal problems, which can worsen over time and do irreparable harm if not addressed.
What Can I Expect From My Crown After It Has Been Placed?
After your dental crown is put in place, you should be able to bite, chew, and speak without discomfort. Crowns are more than just a means of protecting teeth that have previously had problems. With your crown, you should be able to absorb bite pressure without difficulty. While dental ceramic is popular because of its appearance, it is still strong enough to make it reliable for bite support for many years.
